From Glasgow’s closest port of Greenock, we’ll cruise over to the Isle of Mull, docking in its colourful capital where an unmistakable row of painted houses offers a bright welcome. Here, you’ll get to tour Duart Castle for a window on the historic clans of Scotland, or enjoy a scenic cruise on the Sound of Mull where dolphins and minke whales swim in the waters.
Stornoway is the next stop, the gateway to the Western Isles where Harris Tweed outlets are brimming with beautiful fabrics and ancient history awaits on the verdant Isle of Lewis. Explore the castle or see some Neolithic standing stones.
You can take in Corrieshalloch Gorge and its rushing waterfalls in Ullapool, or you could opt to hike the dramatic, ancient landscapes of Knockan Crag. Docking in Portree, the pretty waterside capital of the Isle of Skye, we’ll head out to explore the island’s lofty landscapes. The rich-green foliage and unusual rock formations of the Fairy Glen are simply otherworldly, and the Old Man of Storr is striking evidence of geological shifts from millennia ago.
Sip single malts in Islay – Scotland’s whisky isle – and meet the hen harriers of Loch Gruinart nature reserve, before we finally dock back in Glasgow to finish our voyage.
